How much fruit do you think one small girl can manage to eat in one day? In the case of the narrator of this counting poem, the answer is a lot! Count from one to ten and learn the names of some Caribbean fruits, and find out what happens after eating a cocktail of mangoes, bananas and more.

Valerie Bloom's Fruits is a Caribbean counting poem full of sumptuous illustrations by David Axtell, the creator of We're Going on a Lion Hunt. The rhyming text will help children learn to count whilst exploring the many fruits of the Caribbean.
